THAT IS SO FUCKING WRONG, OH MY GOD
) went to Sugar Mountain on his way home, so he offered to pick me up something. I asked for jellybeans. Like the sadistic jerk he is, he stood contemplatively by the racks with scoop in hand and a half-filled bag for awhile, then turned and asked the clerk, "Would it be mean of me to mix Jalapeno in with the Green Apple as a prank, since they look the same?" The Clerk replied that no, what he wanted to do was buy a box of Bean Boozled, in which they've actually done the work for you.
So now I have this little box of jellybeans (along with a bag of nice fruity safe ones because, and I quote, "You would beat me otherwise") with a legend on the back that lists how there are multiple types of beans in there, but each colour could be one of two flavours: Black could either be Licorice or Skunk Spray, dappled white-and-yellow could be Buttered Popcorn but might also be Rotten Egg, speckled orange might be Peach or might actually be Vomit. The other combinations are Café Latte vs Ear Wax, Caramel Corn vs Moldy Cheese, Juicy Pear (my favourite) vs Booger, Coconut vs Baby Wipes, Top Banana vs Pencil Shavings, and Plum vs Black Pepper. For each combination, there are a random number of either option in the box, so you really don't know what you're going to get when you pull one out.
The first few I tried were all on the good side, so I was beginning to think that they were ALL good flavours, and the whole thing was a prank in itself. You know. "Haha, you hemmed and hawed and winced trying each one when there weren't any nasty flavours in there at all! Joke's on you!"?
Then I bit into a black one and got a mouth full of skunk. Don't think I've ever spat something out so fast in my life, and that damnable roommate of mine just sat there laughing. LAUGHING.
(Of course, he did just watch me give in to my own fatal curiosity as I willingly tried one of each, so maybe he does have some small reason to mock me. There's something to be said for giving me just enough rope to hang myself with, I suppose, when you know for a fact that I'll take it.)EDIT: Kevin's entry
